Laura’s wedding ceremony was held at St Giles Church (The Church that moved) Lincoln.

The pews were dressed with purple/aubergine organza bows with 2 ivory gerberas in the centre, one with an added diamante broach. These were positioned on opposite pews but on alternative rows.

The wedding breakfast was held at Hemswell Court where the tables were dressed with a mixture of high and low designs.

The colours from the bouquets were carried through along with the flowers. The tall designs were martini vases which had a lilac delphinium, red calla lily, purple/lilac roses, carnations and chrysants and white hydrangeas with mixed foliage. These were made in a container which sits in the vase (which I hire) so the display may be given away to guests after the event. The ‘bowl’ part of the vase was filled with purple sisal. The low designs were in glass cubes and included white and purple dendrobium orchids, lilac roses and alstroemeria, and stallion chrysants with mixed foliage.

Hemswell court all set up and ready for the arrival of the wedding party.

Laura and her mum came to me from a recommendation from a previous bride.

The colour was aubergine which in flowers was hard to match up so we brought in a range of lilacs and purples to compliment instead.

Laura’s bridal bouquet was a fabulous mix of flowers in a loose cascading design and included calla lily, memory lane roses, purple dendrobium orchids, white cymbidium orchids, white hydrangea and a mix of foliage.

The 13 (yes 13!) adult bridesmaids each carried a hand tie posy of memory lane and avalanche roses with gypsophila and pistachio foliage. The stems were bound in ivory ribbon.

Sophie came to me through a recommendation from another bride. Her wedding was held at The Assembly Rooms and her colours were red and white.

Sophie chose a very striking mix of Freedom red roses and gyp and fern with a salal foliage collar. The stems were bound in red satin ribbon and held with pearl pins.

The three bridesmaids, who were wearing red dresses, carried a similar style bouquet but with a mix of red and white roses with the gyp, fern and salal collar.

I also hired 2 bay trees for either side the ceremony table and red and white roses for tall slim vases for the tables. Unfortunately as the room was turned around I didn’t manage to get any photos.

Last October I was involved in a gorgeous photo shoot at the stunning Woodhall Spa Manor. A new venue in the heart of Woodhall Spa set in fabulous grounds and woodland.

It was organized by Ruth and Hayley of Precision Wedding Consultants with photos taken by Stuart Wilde.

I provided a showr bouquet and hand tie bouquet for the bride,a bridesmaid and flower girl posy and buttonhole for the groom. For venue decoration there was a ceremony table design and another for the mantelpiece behind the ceremony table which was transferred to the entrance fireplace, bottles for either side the fireplace which doubled up for table designs and one of my lovely crystal gem chimney candelabras.

The flowers used were a mix of roses, eustoma, ranunculus, heather, protea, tulips, calla lilies, sedum, hydrangea and a mix of foliages.

If you are getting married you need to see this gorgeous venue and if you require flowers please get in touch to see how we can bring your style and ideas to life.

Emily contacted me to talk about the 5o’s inspired wedding she was planning. She wanted the flowers to tie in with the three different coloured dresses the bridesmaids were wearing. The brides bouquet was to be a mix of coloured flowers while the bridesmaids were to be neutral.

I came up with coral peonies, raspberry roses and blue/purple hydrangea with lavender with sprigs of asparagus fern. The stems were wrapped in pale blue ribbon with white polka dots to match the underskirt of the brides dress.

The three bridesmaids each carried a simple bouquet of gyp with the stems bound in the pale blue and white spotted ribbon.

The flower girl wore a small wrist corsage of hydrangea florets and gyp attached to the same ribbon for tying on her wrist.

The mum’s wore a lapel corsage of flowers from the bridal bouquet. (The green outer guard petals on the peony were removed on delivery. These stop the flowers blooming as quickly)

Diane’s wedding ceremony took place at St Nicholas Church at Gunby.

As it is a small church we decided that decorating the pews was sufficient. We kept the colour and flower theme with large burgundy organza bows with a double gerbera flower centre in pink and orange. These were hung an alternative pews along the aisle.

The wedding breakfast was held in The Old Barn (Now The Wyndham Garden Hotel) at Marston near Grantham.

As there were 6 guest tables Diane had opted for two tables of each colour which we kept to for the flower displays. These were 10″ fish bowls with 3 gerberas floating in and bear grass swirls, this was all sat on a round mirror.

The front of the table was also treated to a runner of gerbera petals in all 3 colours.
